COBOL is powering the world’s most important financial institutions - and yet, the prominent AI developer tools have completely neglected it. Over 30,000 enterprises collectively rely on over 800B lines of COBOL code, and large language models offer us a new means to serve them.

As a Founding AI Engineer at CobolCopilot, you’ll be responsible for our AI-powered code understanding and code generation products. These include:

  • Documentation: AI generated documentation on millions of lines of code to help enterprises make sense of their archaic, monolithic systems
  • Search: semantic code search against COBOL syntax and business logic
  • Synthesis: code generation that’s personalized to a customer’s codebase

Your day-to-day will involve:

  • Designing prompting pipelines
  • Fine-tuning models
  • Owning a comprehensive evals engine
  • Vendor evaluation and selection
  • Speaking with (and incorporating feedback from) customers in leadership positions at large (e.g. F500) companies

What you bring

  • Practical experience building products powered by LLMs
  • Interest in serving banking, fintech, insurance, public sector, healthcare industries
  • High sense of urgency
  • Ideally based in San Francisco with an ability to work in-person, but remote OK for exceptional candidates

What we offer

  • The most competitive equity grants on the market (top 99.99%)
  • High growth environment (your next job likely won’t be a job at all: it’ll be your own startup)
